TheBlaze’s Sara Carter explains how she was ‘denied’ access to the border by DHS

Because of the 24/7 nature of the news cycle, stories rarely stay on the front page for very long. The immigration crisis is a perfect example. As the media’s attention has turned to the escalating violence in the Middle East and the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, coverage of the thousands of illegal immigrants crossing the border daily has largely fallen by the wayside.

On radio this morning, Glenn spoke to TheBlaze’s senior Washington correspondent Sara Carter who just wrapped up a trip to Willacy County in Texas where she spoke with local law enforcement, Border Patrol agents, and others about the current conditions at the border.

Carter explained she was initially scheduled to go the border last week as part of a trip with the Department of Homeland Security. After being personally invited by someone from the public information office at DHS, Carter was abruptly uninvited. She explained how the situation unfolded:

“[T]wo weeks ago, I get a call from DHS – from one of the public information officers saying, ‘Hey, Sara, would you still like to go on a ride along with us along the border? We spent a little bit of a week over there last month when the crisis was really escalating.’ And I said, ‘Absolutely. Let us know what we need do.’

They go, ‘Well, you’re more than invited. You can do pretty much whatever you want. Do you want to go on ATVs? Do you want do go on horseback? Do you want to come out with us on boats?’ I said, ‘Whatever you guys you’re willing to provide, we’re willing to do. And I’d like to do all of it, but I got to get approval.’ And they said, ‘Great, no problem.’

We got approval. We’re getting ready to go. They pushed me to this week. And then on Sunday, when I couldn’t reach anybody in Washington, D.C., I get a really short email saying, ‘Hey, Sara, guess what? You’ve been denied. No longer are we going to give you a ride along. Not going to take you anywhere. And you need to call Washington, D.C. and find out who up there denied you because we can’t tell you anything.’

What? You can’t imagine how many phone calls I made. I said, ‘This is my job, guys.’ [So] I never found out why, but I made so many phone calls and I raised such a stink about this because this is a denial of our rights. First of all, you invited us. We didn’t push this on you. And second of all, I have every right to be out there to see what’s going on in our border and report this to our readers and to our listeners.

I really held them to the gun on this one. And I said, ‘I’m going to publish a story that is going to reflect what you have done to me and to my company and to the people who are expecting to receive the information so that they can make decisions.’ And guess what: They immediately approved my request. It was that quick. Nobody would ever tell me who denied me. Nobody would ever tell me why they were going to deny me, and that was it.”

Carter was told she would be able to visit one of the holding facilities as part of her tour with DHS. While it is well documented that cameras have not been allowed into any of these areas, she hoped to be able to write a story about the conditions. At the last minute, that access was denied.

“Nobody is being allowed with a camera. Let me make it clear that DHS said that, on this trip, we were going to be granted access to this facility. And then they denied me access,” she said. “I have a friend who works for another news agency… and they were told… ‘Hey, you can come in too.’ And when they got there, they said, ‘Yeah, keep the camera outside. You can’t talk to anyone. You can’t question any of the children. And you can’t talk to any of our border patrol agents.’”

As Carter explained, the lack of access is “just incredible” because journalists “have every right to question.” All was not lost, however, because she was able to interview s number of people crossing the Rio Grande River.

“We were able to intercept a family – a group of seven – when we were out on the border, before Border Patrol arrived. I mean this family was coming across the Rio Grande… We were able to get a lot of great stories,” Carter explained. “And when border patrol got there, the border patrol agent was so nervous. He said, ‘Management just called me and told me to tell you to stop talking to them. You can’t talk to the illegal immigrants.’”

It should be noted Carter was on private property when this request came in, and she refused to follow orders. While she “[doesn’t] blame the border patrol agent,” the incident shines a light on the lack of transparency.

Ultimately, the conditions at these border town continue to be nothing short of dire, and Carter will share what she saw in an upcoming series of articles for TheBlaze.com.

“You have this entire area, which [is] almost like a prison in the United States: Families living in shacks, illegal immigrants working in U.S. owned factories, living like prisoners, and drug cartel members controlling these people and using them,” Carter said. “And everyone knows it, and no one does anything. These children are being raped. These men and women are kept as slaves.”

Editor’s Note: Sara Carter will be joining Glenn on Thursday’s Glenn Beck Program to further discuss her trip to the border. Learn more HERE.

    But liberals think it is a good Idea to do nothing but Dems are the same people who supported slavery in the past.

    • Jeff Lambeau

      Dems and liberals weren’t the same thing in the past. Republicans were liberals in the 1800’s, the Dems were the conservatives which is why their main reason against Lincoln’s emancipation agenda was to “conserve and preserve the Southern way of life and tradition, i.e. owning slaves” and also called against Lincoln and Teddy Roosevelt’s (both Republican party members) vast expansion of government power.

      • BlueMN

        Dems and liberals still aren’t necessarily the same thing, but Teabaggers like Connor don’t understand the concept of political evolution or nuance… or history for that matter.

          and you expect to be listened to, seriously? flick.

      • the_independent_truth

        There still not the same.

        • Holly McAllister Harrison

          It saddens me yet again that it has to be explained to you. If you can’t see what slavery has to do with the borders then you are ignorant. You have not the information you are attempting to convince the rest of us you have. You can’t even argue this anymore since you don’t have enough the knowledge of the entire problem. Research before you debate. At least have a working skillset.

          • the_independent_truth

            Explain it then

          • Holly McAllister Harrison

            Simple. These immigrants are being exploited and those who are being brought here by drug cartels and mules are brought in in slave conditions, forced to work to pay off their debt for the money they were charged to be brought in. They can never pay the so called debt. Many have families that are threatened if they try to run away from them. Women are forced into prostitution and force feed drugs so that they become addicts. They have little chance of getting free because of their illegal status. This is enough explanation even though there is far more atrocities out there. Coming here isn’t 100% as awesome as some people want to make it out to be. The sugar coating just fell off. This is what I mean by you not getting it and why I had no idea why you didn’t see the relevance. Be well.

          • the_independent_truth

            LOL, that is not slavery. You may can call being an indentured servants, But is not slavery please look up the difference in the two. Secondly when I say there not the same is when you try and judge Dem. and rep. from today with Dem. and Rep. from Lincolns administration. Yes dem where for slavery and rep. where against. But during the civil rights movement the Dem. where for civil rights while the rep. didn’t. The to parties have change allot over time so to try and say that the Dems. now are the same one that where for slavery is ridiculous.

          • Holly McAllister Harrison

      What does this statement have to do with the article. Or did you just wanted a chance to bash Dems. for no reason.

          You show exactly what is wrong with this country and why we have so many problems. Can you please show me where i wrote the borders should not be close. You just assumed that because i pointed out that the statement you made has nothing to do with the article and you still have not explain what that statement has to do with this article. And i do believe the borders should be closed.

        There’s always a reason to bash Dems — don’t kid yourself. They do so much damage and cause so much misery and chaos it’s hard to believe sometimes.

  • landofaahs

    Citizens can’t go to the border but illegals can cross it. More examples of Obama justice.

    • Elena

      Had you considered it was to protect the civilian? It’s not just illegals wanting better lives that come across at any time of day and night. It’s some really bad dudes who pack all manner of “heat” thanks to Fast & Furious.

      • landofaahs

        If they cared about the citizens they would stop the illegals from coming here in the first place so that doesn’t wash.

    • the_independent_truth

      Citizens can go to the bored. If you read what she said was in the email was they denied her a ride along. But they never told her she couldn’t go to the border.

      • Texas4Freedom

        You said this already…it wasn’t relevant then, its not relevant now. We know that media has been denied access to DHS facilities and personnel, ICE, US Customs, pretty much all Federal agents/officers. Reporters doing their jobs require access to those in the “know” to answer key questions about the degree of the problem, steps being taken, and the effectiveness of any ongoing operations or lack thereof. This “denied access” is an effort to hide the truth from the American people. It’s obvious!

        • the_independent_truth

          This is nothing new it’s been like this from the start of the country. So why all of a sudden you guys want to make a big deal out of this like this has not been going on for Centuries. Where were the complaits when Reagan, both Bushes, Clinton, FDR, Licoln, Washington,Nixon had confidential places and documents. But Obama Does the same he the worst president ever. If you did complain when all the other Presidents did you can’t complain now

          • Holly McAllister Harrison

            There were not as many media outlets then as there are now. There were not tons of blogs, websites and online reporting as there are now. It’s hard to hide things now and there are far more outlets now, then there ever were. Don’t say we were unhappy about whatever was hidden previously, we just didn’t see it everywhere and had no where near the number of places to complain about it, get upset or voice our beliefs or feelings regarding such behaviors.

          • the_independent_truth

            So your telling me we didn’t know confidential things where going on in the government until 2008?

            Well since you seem to think that we only found out the government kept secret in 2008, did that change how you felt about the other presidents now that you know that they did.

          • Holly McAllister Harrison

            I never said I was unaware or believed they were saints. I also said no one else was unaware, but I speak of today’s generation where everything is out there and always will be. It’s much easier than it used to be. Much easier than it was in my 20’s or much of my 30’s. Those who are of those ages now are more informed because of social media and all the other outlets. All I had was the news, newspapers and word of mouth. We all know how the media is now too, right? That is simple fact. Try not to make something else out of it.

          • the_independent_truth

            Here is the point if you want to make the excuse that they didn’t have social media back then. That’s look at it like this we know now of all the confidential places and documents that have gone on from all the presidents. Why would you just signal out the left. There where you show your bias. If you really was upset about this issues you would look at the history of whats going on and say this is a government problem not just a left pro agenda. that just show your just looking to blame thing on the left instead of looking for the truth.

          • Holly McAllister Harrison

            Only you see it as an excuse. I offer a different explanation and you are too full of yourself to see it from anyone’s view, but your own. Good luck with that. I think you will have a great and successful relationship with yourself. Best wishes.

      • Watch it

        They denied her the freedom of talking to any illegals who crossed. What good does it do to go to the border and just look at it – the imaginary line?

        • the_independent_truth

          please show me where she said they denied cameras at the border.

          • Bully Pulpit

            They asked to stop talking to the crossers and stop taking pictures. They harassed her until she left.

          • the_independent_truth

            Yea OK. again this is a non story.

          • Holly McAllister Harrison

            Yeah o.k., again you don’t seem to get it. How is this not a story? The government hiding the truth, attempting to keep reporters out and from gaining information from those who are crossing illegal isn’t news? Then tell me, what the hell is? Sheeple member I guess.

          • the_independent_truth

            Why does she go to the border and talk to them crossing the border. So what she could go into the DHS faculties. Please show me where in the constitution that says you have the right to go into any place you want. And that also shows that you either did not read or could not comprehend my first statement.

          • Watch it

            Obviously it is. The leftist pro-illegal immigrant supporters wanting everyone to ignore it doesn’t make it a non-story.

          • the_independent_truth

            why does she do what all good reports do just go to the border herself

          • Watch it

            Don’t divert – I said “The leftist pro-illegal immigrant supporters wanting everyone to ignore it doesn’t make it a non-story.” in response to your claim that this is a non-story. You have yet to support your comment.

          • the_independent_truth

            It is a non-story because you can’t just walk into a a holding facility just because you want to when did that become some kind of right. The second reason is this was a non story when Reagan was denying access to place and having confidential documents and conversation like all of our president have done. But instead of saying the government is trying to hide something you just say the leftist are hiding something. But it when Reagan and the Bushs did it you called it security.

          • Watch it

            This isn’t just about anyone just walking into a holding facility.
            Reagan has nothing to do with this subject matter and was scrutinized during his time for his actions, as was Bush eagerly castigated for his. Their issues of national security hardly compare with illegal immigration and the present administrations desire to keep their actions and events secret. Don’t try to conflate this with that.

            Your opinion and anything unrelated to this issue does not make this a non-story. The fact that it upsets you or doesn’t set well with your ideology or this administrations agenda doesn’t make it a non issue, but it is plain to see, and understandable why you all would like it to be a non-issue.

          • the_independent_truth

            ok so illegal immigrants have nothing to do with national security? Actually illegal immigration have a lot to do with national security. You do understand that most terrorist are immigrants and allot of the are here illegally. Second the previous presidents have allot to do with it. This is not a rule that Obama came up with it’s a rule that has been in forced in the country for decades. and just to prove my point about the president, In a previous comment you posted you stated how this is a leftist pro agenda instead of saying the government that show your bias and that you are looking at just to bash Obama and the left instead of the real issues . that my biggest problem.Second please explain why this is a story. And it does not upset my ideology. I just see things as they really are instead of just agreeing with what some talking head says i go and research my self and make my own mind. And could you explain why it is a issue. What right of hers was violated. this a huge problem with this country is that we are divided between left and right and we make are decision on if a person is right or wrong by weather there left or right. Which should not be that way we need to start judging these politicians by what they and do not weather there Dem. Or Rep.

          • Watch it

            Again, you are making things up and trying to ascribe words and thoughts to me that aren’t mine, but are of your own creation.

            National security where illegals are concerned (terrorists getting into the USA) is a real issue, but not this issue, and not what the security issues were to Bush or Reagan, but again, they are irrelevant.

            What Obama is doing is his doings, not that of past POTUSs. He is responsible for his policies and their results.

            Yes, this is the result of pro-illegal immigration stance/laws/policies of Obama and the left.

            This is a story because the government is trying to hide the truth, because Ms Carter was given the invitation to tour the facilities, border, talk to people, etc, then suddenly the WH puts the kibosh on it, no explanation. It is a story because freedom of the press is being denied, again, because the WH is trying to control the information – which is not security threat type info. It is info that makes this administration look bad, so Obama and the WH have to control the narrative. They can’t have info getting out that says that thousands of kids are coming here because Obama policies will let it happen, instead they tried to spread the lie that it was all because of violence in the illegals homelands – as if it was something new.

          • the_independent_truth

            So I don’t see the problem. She was interviewing people as they where entering the country illegally. When DHS gets there they have to arrest those individuals. Please when was the last time they allowed any one to interview some one while they got arrested. There following rules that they have had since the department was created. And now just because the President Is democrat it’s now a problem. I just don’t understand why this was all find when a republican was in office but now that it is a democrat it’s wrong. If you didn’t complain under other administration for this you can’t complain now.

          • Watch it

            They weren’t being arrested at the time. There is no law I am aware of that prevents anyone from talking to them. If you think there is, by all means, present it. Please refrain from diverting this to past presidents. This is 2014.

          • the_independent_truth

            Show me where does she say there not being arrested. And please tell me if you can just cross the border illegally with out being arrested whey are they snicking in. Could you please tell me where you get the information the it’s legal for illegal immigrants can just cross the border. Sorry but i have to go to past presidents because this is the same thing they did and you have no problems with it why is it you only want to talk about Obama and this problem if you don’t like the law don’t just jump on the Dem. president jump on all who have enforced this if your not willing to see it’s wrong when they do. That just mean your looking for any little thing you can lay at his door step.

          • Watch it

            It says in the article. Please try to read for content, not just words. Go back and reread it. I shouldn’t have to keep pasting quotes for you. The same goes for what I posted. I never wrote that it was legal for illegals to cross the border. It is against the law, which makes them ILLEGALS!

            It is this administration that not only refuses to enforce the law on a grande scale, but it actively is looking for new ways to circumvent our laws, grant amnesty and rights/priviledges that were only meant for those here legally. It has created new policies that attract more illegal immigration – to wit, DACA and Dreamer .

            Going to past presidents is a ploy, a diversion, a strawman, and you have no idea what I did or didn’t have problems with. You need to learn not to make assumptions about what other people think just because you need to make a point and can’t.

          • Randy Mickiewicz

            Yeah we will show you as soon as you show us proof that all the presidents you mentioned in your previous posts had “confidential places and documents”. Isn’t having the reporter stating that she was denied enough for you? Or do you reserve the right to only believe what msnbc, cnn and The View report?

          • Holly McAllister Harrison

            I think he prefers repeating himself and using “The Onion”, Randy. This guy doesn’t seem to get the point here, nor does he have a valid argument as to why Sara Carter should have been barred access or be able to express her First Amendment right. It appears he would prefer she was hauled out of there at the thought she may uncover some truth that WE have the Right to be informed. Suddenly she can’t talk to the illegals, but they can continue to jump our borders and stroll in here with all their dreams to come true. Instead of them keeping the illegals out to protect us then, they feel the need to keep us away to protect them as they realize their dreams of gaining all the benefits they can get from us. Also, since when have reporters not reported from war zones or conflict areas? She has every right to report. That’s her decision to place her life in danger in order to get the truth.

          • the_independent_truth

            That’s easy White House, Military Base, Fort Knox, CIA Headquarters, FBI Headquarters, Camp David. These are all places that you have to be giving access to enter. Her saying she got denied is fine, the problem is she is saying her rights have been violated witch they have not. And the second problem is all of you acting like this is something new.

          • Holly McAllister Harrison

            ” ….Carter explained. “And when border patrol got there, the border patrol agent was so nervous. He said, ‘Management just called me and told me to tell you to stop talking to them. You can’t talk to the illegal immigrants.’” So if she couldn’t talk to them then, I guess that applies to cameras as well. Do you think they would go through the trouble of warning her or even directing her to stop talking to them, then stand there and just let them film silently? If they were so worried about her safety then regardless of whether she was talking or filming, it would pose the same danger because she would be standing in the same area. I am a little sad that this has to be explained at all.

          • the_independent_truth

            LOL, That because they where illegal aliens if dhs is there don’t you think they would take them into custody. And please let me know the last time you where able to interview someone while there being arrested.

            First, read the article. Then, READ my post without conflating or otherwise misinterpreting what I wrote.

            From the article:

            Nobody is being allowed with a camera. Let me make it clear that DHS said that, on this trip, we were going to be granted access to this facility. And then they denied me access,” she said. “I have a friend who works for another news agency… and they were told… ‘Hey, you can come in too.’ And when they got there, they said, ‘Yeah, keep the camera outside. You can’t talk to anyone. You can’t question any of the children. And you can’t talk to any of our border patrol agents.’”

            “Carter was told she would be able to visit one of the holding facilities as part of her tour with DHS. While it is well documented that cameras have not been allowed into any of these areas, she hoped to be able to write a story about the conditions. At the last minute, that access was denied.”

          • the_independent_truth

            Again like i said before no rights where violated by denying her from bring a camera to the dhs facility. If you actually read what i wrote is that she can go to the border herself with a camera. Please, read my first comment again and then listen to her at no point was she told she could not go to the border with a camera.

          • Watch it

            From what I posted that she related, it is obvious that she is operating under the assumption that she will not be allowed a camera. That is very easy to discern. She also made it clear that her access was denied both at the facility and to even talk to crossers that weren’t in the facility.. That all violates her rights.

          • the_independent_truth

            That’s correct because if dhs is there when these people enter the country illegally that have to be arrested. When did they start letting you interview a someone while being arrested.

          • Watch it

            They were not being arrested, and were on private property.

          • the_independent_truth

            Ok so you are saying that illegal immigrants are allowed to cross the bored with out being arrest if they a caught crossing by DHS? Could you show me where it says they don get arrested for crossing the border. What private property where they on? She said they where on the borders that not private property. And if it was private property they would be trespassing.

          • Watch it

            I didn’t say anything of the kind.

            “It should be noted Carter was on private property…”

            The border patrol isn’t responsible for arresting people who trespass on other peoples private property. In any case – they were not being arrested at the time. The agent was not there to arrest them, he was there to tell Carter that she couldn’t talk to anyone.

            Don’t respond anymore with statements that indicate that you haven’t read or can’t understand the article or the issue. It is evident that your only purpose here is to throw irrelevancy and anything else you can concoct into the event to cause a disruption because you support illegal immigration and what the administration is doing.

          You know there are few <1% can qualify as refugees — the rest are border runners looking for an opportunity (like everyone else on the waiting lists waiting to get in legally/respectfully).

      • Bully Pulpit

        12million over our border without our permission or invitation is an invasion.
        but, you know that.

        • the_independent_truth

          really so now there invading us and doing all the jobs we don’t want how tragic

          • Holly McAllister Harrison

            What’s tragic is that you are still talking, trying to have a battle of wits while being unarmed and that your sarcasm isn’t even smart. So, if the illegals don’t do those so-called unwanted jobs then who will? Freaking Americans that’s who. Unemployment will be lower don’t you think? Nah, I guess that’s ridiculous to you. Those darn illegals don’t steal anything from us at all, right? You are something else, to day the least. I may begin, and I say may, to give you some credibility if you start with using proper grammar. I just can’t take you serious at all. Don’t blame me, you put yourself out there with it.

          • the_independent_truth

            So why don’t the homeless do those jobs then?

          • Cocheta

            Mr. “Truth,” seriously, are you some kinda talking point robot with really bad hearing and programming? Just curious…

          • the_independent_truth

            Can you explain your statement?

      • Holly McAllister Harrison

        Stop talking please.

    • Bully Pulpit

      We are scattered. And we know to take matters in our own hands the likes of “the-independent-truth” will also face off against us as the federal government does. If you don’t have dark skin you will be even more of a political and media target. Hard to take that on when you have a family to support and bills to pay. That is why the likes of “the-independent-truth” and the federal government, and BLM , and militarized police, etc have the upper hand.

        our founding fathers did not feel that way and i do not believe Americans are such cowards that they will just be slaves to the govt

    Why not just rent a jet ski and go out on the river. Sit at the Riverside Club in Mission and get an eyeful there, too. You can also watch fm Anzaldua Park where DPS boats go up against cartel jet skis. There are plenty of public places you can watch the action from.

    • the_independent_truth

      Thank you, just because they denied her a ride along does not mean she can’t just go to the border herself.

      • Bully Pulpit

        the camps is what she has been denied.
        Everyone has been denied.

        • the_independent_truth

          it’s not a right to go into those camps

  • ActualConundrum

    When you have a lot to hide you don’t want people looking. That has been the Obama legacy in a nutshell.

    • the_independent_truth

      What did he hide from her?

      • ActualConundrum

        They don’t allow camera’s or talking to the illegal aliens. They tried to stop all access. This is straight from Obama. Not the border guards. Didn’t you read the story? She had to sneak one interview till stopped.

        His legacy includes his birth hidden. Only fake BC’s so far. Fake SS number, fake military draft registration hiding school records that say foreign student right on them. And the most untransparent Presidency ever in history. What hasn’t he hid would be a infinitesimal short list.

            where is he

        • the_independent_truth

          Yea, it’s always been that way. You just can’t walk into INS office and Holding centers and talk to who you want you have get permission. She was denied i Don’t see the problem. That just mean she needs to do more work to get info in the story. And add in the story that she was denied access.

      • joejohey

        Obama is trying to minimize the impact of whats really going on at the border. If there are no pictures, no stories, no news articles then he controls outrage and public opinion. The fact is that all these illegal immigrants coming to the open boarders is putting the democratic party into a negative light. That’s why hes hiding this.

        • the_independent_truth

          Please show me where they tell her she can’t go to the borders with a camera.

      • Bully Pulpit

        The feds won’t let her in the camps.

      • Bully Pulpit

        they won’t let anyone in the camps.

        • the_independent_truth

          ok so are you allowed in every government building. When have we been able just to walk up to prison and places like this without permission.

    • Bully Pulpit

      Obama said it himself.

    • the_independent_truth

      That the legacy of the Goverment Please tell me a which President had the transparent administration. None of them.

  • the_independent_truth

    They never told her she could go to the border and shoot film. they told her that she was denied from being in a ride along with her. They never violated her rights this is a non-story.

    • rfunk

      Troll some more you ignorant little puke. I couldn’t pay one of my employees to be as stupid as you. Soros must have shopped the bottom of the barrel IQ pond for your talents.

      • the_independent_truth

        What does this statement have to do with the video?

    • Bully Pulpit

      so, what she told about the personal interviews with the actual migrants was nothing to you?
      Please, you didn’t even listen to the whole video and if you did but can remain so heartless, then I fear for those that are in your life or close to your life now.

      • the_independent_truth

        that because you need permission to talk to illegal immigrants. It’s just like convicts you just can’t say you want to speak to a convict you have to request. I still don’t see where her rights where violated.

  • Duurp O’Fallon

    When the people know about this and the President does not know or is ignoring it, start to worry about your Government. You sheeple, ooops! I mean people are living in denial. There is a grand reason this is happening and you should be preparing for something big here in the future. The signs are everywhere, you just have to keep your eyes open and your mind open to anything that can happen probably will.

  • BevB

    First of all, Willacy County is not along the border – although it does have plenty of illegal immigrants trying to cross it. And where is the area that is “like a prison in the United States”? The Rio Grande Valley has close to a million people living and working here. If illegal immigrants are working in factories, it is the management that needs to be investigated because it is their responsibility to check the documentation of every employee. Many people are [doing something] – but the government is definitely not doing what the laws demand.

    • Bully Pulpit

      How about you go investigate and offer a report Bev? Then you don’t have to ask us the questions, you can investigate and tell us what you found to be the case. Seems to me you are sittin’ on your ass and nit picking Ms. Carter’s personal accounting — so jump up and gather your pen and your camera and find out instead of speculate.
      For me, I believe Ms. Carter — but I will read your actual reporting once you have done it and post it.

    • Holly McAllister Harrison

      You’re right about the factories needing to be investigated. Illegal employees are very common. ICE raids businesses all over the U.S. after gaining evidence often. I have seen it happen. However, if you believe it isn’t happening then you are blind. You don’t even know if they aren’t investigating factories already. To assume Sara Carter is lying or stretching the truth is ridiculous when you have no evidence to the contrary. Go do some investigation out there for us and report back would you. I mean seriously, please, go out there and jump into the fire for us.

  • 13citizen13

    I can’t believe the media is silently bowing to the government on this story. Any reputable news organization would do whatever it took to get pictures & stories. Where are the investigative reporters? The media is just as bad as our politicians.

    AH Transparency , What utter Horse Crap!! The POTUS has never been transparent he has been deceptive & subversive for his ENTIRE LIFE!! Mark my words He wants to be the Head of the UN (& it will not surprise me if he becomes SEC.Gen of UN )

  • wildbillsooner

    There is a lot more going on here than meets the eye and what is being told to the public! I think the Underground Rail Road needs to look into this a lot deeper! I believe some of these children are ending up in sex slave trade that will go high up in the political and elites world!

  • Moozmom

    Very troubling information and very sad for those caught in the trap, believing America has a system in place as soon as they arrive. This is abuse of these people and the children, the children are the ones I’m most sick about.

  • Futurestrder

    Can you imagine the outrage if President Bush was in the White house? In any event, the entire approval/denial process is no doubt aggravating for the reporter. It should be reported, it should be exposed, maybe there is great good going on. Maybe this is such a fantastic thing with everyone happy and enjoying the hospitality of the DHS and border security and golf lessons. oh wait, Sorry, if that was the case, the Pres would be there to have ribs with everyone in a photo op. So maybe things are not that good. Maybe they outright stink but until someone gets video and pictures, it doesn’t exist for most people. Now, the places that these people are coming from, most of them are destinations on the International Living hit parade for expats to go to retire. The stink is getting worse and worse. I would say what is wrong with US voters but Ontario voters, voted for Kathleen Wynne.

    it is uncommon for reporters in the field to have this kind of passion. ms. carter is so special.

  • Tom Noreen

    Sara Carter was an excellent news reporter in the I.E. So. Calif. years ago covering the problem on our Southern border back then. We miss her and her great reporting. Keep up the good work!

  • Bully Pulpit

    It disgusts me that our mainstream media (nbc, cbs, abc, nightline, 60 minutes, 20/20) are not covering these stories and the reality of the situation. If someone would say they are LGBT slaves then maybe this would draw coverage. At least Obama would have go to visit them.

    this is horrible.
    I want other countries to cover this in their news and make it a big deal. Expose and embarrass the US for this problem by not showing it to it’s people. Maybe if France, Denmark, Sweden, Norway would make documentaries on this, our citizens would wake up, because “now, its a story when other countries start looking under the covers”. You know how the left loves everything Europe — well Europe should then bring this tragedy to light.

    Amnesty will not fix this problem only make it worse!

  • Monet

    Just get in a car and drive down there, this is the stupidest thing I’ve read

    • Randy Mickiewicz

      Driving down there and being on a ride along are 2 different things. Driving down there and actually being able to talk to the “immigrants” are 2 different things. If it were Bush denying an MSNBC reporter access would you still think it was the stupidest thing you’ve ever read? I doubt it.
